    Damn it NRA, they did something that made sense and then they upset the very vocal minority... and abandoned the majority. The vast majority of NRA members aren't supporting these guys carrying long rifles into family style restaurants to make a point about the 2nd amendment.... a lot of people don't support that. The NRA is composed of sane people, they should have stood by those sane people. Not saying open carry isn't sane, but I'm just saying there are simpler... much more effective ways of getting your point across. Intimidating a bunch of middle aged soccer moms at Chili's.... not the way most people would go.

    Was, my husband stopped being a member this year. They're becoming too flaky for most sane members to continue to support.

    The open-carry wing of the NRA are all a bunch of over-compensating-for-somethin g-else clowns. Seriously a bad way to win people to your side by bringing guns into family places. On the other hand, it would be a great way for liberals, dressed up as conservative gun owners, to pull a stunt like this to troll Republicans and get people to symapthize with Democrats. Don't think for a minute that dirty tricks in politics are a thing of the past.

    @Denizen_Kate In fairness to these particular nutcases, I don't think that they are Democrats. Although, the chick with the bad leg tattoos looks like a dirty, smelly hippie liberal.

    Just when I thought the NRA may actually have developed some common sense....they retract it all. Now all of you gun lovers can go to a restaurant with your family and the guy in the next table has an AK-47 slung across his shoulder.....think nothing about it. It is all about these red-neck idiots who are high on testosterone and alcohol and very low on intelligence. These are the ones that Texas are noted for.

    If you're crazy enough to feel threatened at a Chili's (other than by that chain's high-salt high-fat menu) I suppose you're also crazy enough to think carrying an unloaded Bushmaster into that restaurant is a good idea.

    And if you're stupid enough to think they're carrying them because they feel threatened, then I suppose you'll never grasp the point ever.

    @John_Matrix Actually I read comments from the Tarrant County OC group that made that very point, which is preferable to the "these-guys-are-just-dick s-with-tiny-dicks" interpretation.

    But let me point out that the alternative explanation is not flattering to gun zealots. If you think you should carry a long rifle into a family restaurant is some sort of "protest" - as many do - then the obvious questions is "against what"? Fact is, particularly in Texas, there is no law signed, proposed or even imagined that threatens the ownership of those weapons by those people. Which makes them even more paranoid, doesn't it?

    Pro Tip: Starting a sentence with "if you're stupid enough" is, like "Let me tell another thing I know about the Negro", an infallible marker that the rest of the sentence will be very very hard to understand. In the future you may want to explain your point instead of making personal comments about people you don't know personally.

    No I'll stand by my assessment of you even if it is based on that singular post. It's obvious you don't realize the point behind such a protest and that is to show the absurdity of being able to legally carry long gun openly but not a handgun. Thanks for trying to distort my comment and even trying the lame attempt of implying vague racism on my part to stir emotion against me but your painfully too transparent about it.

    Hehe. The slipped up and told their scary and weird members that they are scary and weird. And now they're taking it back because they've remembered a) the scary and weird people pay dues and buy guns from the NRA's masters, the gun manufacturers, and b) even the NRA is afraid of them.

    I realize you really, really, really dislike the NRA and I'll never change your mind, but could you at least lay off the BS Brady Bunch talking points? If anything it's the gun manufacturers who listen to the NRA.

    @galt45 I'm sorry - I know you'd like the NRA to be something other than a PR firm for the gun manufacturers but that's all they are. Period.

    And I know you have to keep saying that to justify your opposition to them. If you guys ever admitted the NRA is member driven that would mean you oppose citizens rights to voluntarily form oganizations, and to free speech. And it would never do to admit that, would it?

    I can't believe they retracted that statement... I have been around guns my entire life, I puchased my first firearm within a year of moving out on my own.

    I see ABSOLUTELY NO NEED to carry around a firearm in broad daylight meant for mowing down human bodies in the event of an invasion or coup in peace time. Not only that, but a photo I saw of the twats lining up their rifles in a fast food restaurant booth BEGS for some idiot gangsta to take off out the door with them. Don't make the rest of us sensible, responsible owners look like white trash rednecks, alright?

    Anyone who claims you need and AR or AK for deer hunting is a shitty shot and should be sorely ashamed of themselves BTW...

    See the NRA trying to look crazy and sane at the same time.

    I'm not quite sure how to characterize the result except to say that it isn't working too well.

    In my eyes the NRA is a political party and they should go back to their common roots of teaching people how to use weapons responsibly. I am sure the second amendment will survive any challenge without the NRA butting in after all I don't think the American people will allow any bill of right amendment to be changed or dismissed.

    " I don't think the American people will allow any bill of right amendment to be changed or dismissed."

    Just for grins, you should read the amendments to the constitution sometime, especially the 18th and 21st. The truth is the 2nd and 3rd amendments were valid when they were written 250 years ago, but not now. They should be repealed or modified.

    even though its still up to the American people to decide. Or at least I think so. As it is now Congress is working for themselves and leaving their people out.

    The Wussification of America continues. Entity or person makes a statement they believe. Someone complains. Statement is retracted. Does anyone have any convictions?

    @Pr0-Lif3 The problem is, they probably got a bunch of death threats like the gun dealer who wanted to sell safer guns. They knew one of their own peeps could and would kill them in a heartbeat--and, of course, have ample hardware to do so.

    I'd love to be able to afford to buy an AR-15.
    But the last thing I'd do is parade around in public with it.
    I wear my .45 just about everywhere I go; CONCEALED! The last thing I want is for some bad guy to know I have it. Not until he proves to be a deadly threat to me or some innocent person. Then it's too late for him,(the bad guy).

    Problem is, the police can't tell the bad with guns from the good guys with guns. The bad guys start shooting, you start shooting and then the police start shooting--except they just shoot at everybody who is shooting.

    The key element that is missing from the people who don't like what the people did in Texas was that it was intended to be absurd, that was the point. You can't carry a handgun in those places but an AR-15 is okay? The illogical reality of the laws is what was being highlighted by these people. However, pointy headed leftist who see guns as evil ignore the facts and think that these people just like carrying a long to go sit in a restaurant, was again there bias and hate cloud their ability to read and understand.

    If people freaked out as much as they did when I brought a newly purchased snowshovel across the street from Home Depot into a McDonald's, God only knows how they would have reacted when a group of people brought in "long arms".
    Legal or not, justified or not, I can still imagine people freaking out.

    Texas has the most lenient gun laws in the nation. There is no waiting period for gun purchases and all you need is a valid Texas ID. These idiots are still not happy with these restrictions. They want anybody to walk into a Walmart, pick their gun of choice, whether it be a handgun or AK-47, pay the cashier and walk out with it.....no questions asked. Then, they want to go to a restaurant with these guns and scare innocent women and children to death. Just want the NRA ordered.

    Actually you still have to fill out the federal form.. it has questions on it, and lying on it is still a multi-year felony that the federal govenment still proclaims they are not stupid enough to waste their time on.
